Of all the trips that we’ve gone on this year, I’d have to say that this was by far the mother of all last minute runs. In fact, I don’t think any of us had any idea as to where we might be going – if we were going, until the Friday before and even then, nobody had a clue as to what the plan was until close to 10:00 PM that night.
After seeing some of the amazing photos that our very own JK-Forum member (JKTyrant) took while vacationing up in Hume Lake, California, we decided that a trip up there was needed in order for us to see this awesome scenery for ourselves.
Well, inspite of the moonless night we were guaranteed to have and being up in an area that was about as dark as dark can be, I’d have to say that the Perseid Meteor Shower we went up into the Sierra Nevada Mountains to see was more or less a bust. But, with a total of 7 Jeep JK Wranglers and 15 really great people along for the ride, I’d also have to say that the Project-JK Perseid Meteor Shower Trail Run/Camping Trip up was an absolute blast.
Hey everybody, Cindy (wayoflifette) has just finished the latest Project-JK video highlighting our recent Summer Sierra Trek 2007 which took place on July, Friday the 13th. The first half of the video covers our morning run up the Sand Canyon and Wheeler Ridge trails and the second half covers our sunset run up to the beautiful Laurel Lake both of which are located just south of the Mammoth Lakes. Anyway, if you wanna see it, all you need to do is click on the link below or on the banner above.
After spending almost three weeks up in Lake Tahoe, it was finally time for us pack up our things and make our way back home to Southern California. But, before we did, one more run for the road was definitely in order and we decided to make it a run up the Slickrock Trail.
Check it out boys and girls, Project-JK has just finished our latest video highlighting our recent run up the Deer Valley Trail.
With a total of only four Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited’s along for the ride, I can honestly say that the very first Project-JK run up into the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains was by far one of the most enjoyable runs we’ve done to date.
Even though I’ve been up in Lake Tahoe for a little over a week now, I’ve unfortunately had to bring work up with me and, as you can guess, I’ve been stuck doing as much almost everyday since getting here. Need I say, this run up the Deer Valley Trail was the first one we’ve been able to squeeze into our crazy busy schedule and man, am I ever glad we did.
With 14 Jeep JK Wranglers (about a 50/50 split between 2-doors and 4-doors), 3 TJ Wranglers and even a Mitsubishi Montero Sport along for the ride, this Project-JK run up Lockwood Creek Miller Jeep Trail was by far the biggest turnout we’ve had for an outting to date. And, without a doubt, it was by far one of the best ones we’ve had as well.
For those of you who’ve been asking to see some videos of the Project-JK Jeep JK Wrangler in action, here’s a quick video that Matt (doojer), his cameraman Whit and his awesome production crew put together for us heading up Last Chance Canyon.
After wheeling hard for two days in a row, we decided to change things up a little today, sleep in, have some breakfast in town and then do a nice easy run in the Canyonlands National Park with some friends of ours. This is an area around Moab that I had always read about and had always wanted to see but have always been too busy going on orgainzed trail runs and playing on harder obsticals to really take in some of the awesome sights around here. Anyway, the specific trail we ran was one that takes you out to the Colorado River Overlook and man, is it ever a beautiful drive with an absolutely breath taking view at the end of it. And, fortunately for us, we just happen to come at a time where even the drive out to the trail head was covered with vast fields of stunning (but stinky) lavender flowers surrounded by impressive red rock canyon walls.
